|Free Culture (Mediawiki Export XML) - Lawrence Lessig|
Lawrence Lessig could be called a cultural environmentalist. One of Americaâs most original and influential public intellectuals, his focus is the social dimension of creativity: how creative work builds on the past and how society encourages or inhibits that building with laws and technologies.

|Code 2.0 - Lawrence Lessig|
Although the book is named Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace, Lessig uses this theme sparingly. It is a fairly simple concept: since cyberspace is entirely human-made, there are no natural laws to determine its architecture. While we tend to assume that what is in cyberspace is a given, in fact everything there is a construction based on decisions made by people.
